Crowd Media – delivering strategic communications since 2010.

Crowd was formed as a direct response to the shift in mainstream communications at a time when social media channels were emerging. We knew this shift would democratise mainstream marketing & PR processes and radically change the way brands needed to respond to consumers.

We quickly built an enviable reputation for being first and disrupting the existing agency model; we gave our clients real transparency on costs, opinion and insight.

We pioneered this new approach by being brave and making the client story, THE story – by focusing on people and brand personality, years before influencer marketing or storytelling became a “thing”.

From these fundamentals, we continue to offer a full-service marketing consultancy solution, which we believe is the perfect combination of strategic communications planning and problem solving, with the benefit of being able to also deliver the full suite of production services.

Our experienced team have been with us from the start (a rare thing in our sector), which means we’ve developed tried and tested methodologies that our clients can rely on. We bolster this by having long-term relationships with incredibly talented “best of breed” marketing and production professionals.

Ten years on, and we’ve now worked with some of the most respected brands in the Channel Islands and further afield – our team supporting project and retainer based client relationships across multiple sectors.

We believe we offer an alternative approach to the outsourced marketing solution – once which is proactive, frank, transparent and measurably cost-effective.

By our second meeting, through their own research, the team at Crowd knew an impressive amount about our business and the niche sector in which it would be operating. This was the first example of their engaged and proactive approach to working with us which has been the cornerstone of our relationship. Oh, and it goes without saying that the measurable results they deliver, well, they deliver!

I approached Crowd with the intention of wanting to modernise my current website, but also to add new features. They were very receptive to my ideas and managed to design & build a website that achieves the professional brand image that I wanted, and one that showcases the range of content that is associated with my business. They were quick to respond to requests and nothing was impossible to achieve! Thanks Crowd!

We needed to revamp our website so we could properly show who Ultrabeam Hydrographic are, and what we do. Crowd Media were very receptive to our ideas on what we liked and didn't like about our competitors websites, and were able to create a design that fit out brand perfectly! Throughout the project build, Crowd Media were very communicative on progress and nothing was too much effort in order to get everything right. Thank you so much Crowd Media!

Working with brands is what I do. But it's a whole different ballgame when you are the subject matter. Dan at Crowd was the perfect partner to create a bold and intuitive design and website that I'm proud to put to my name. I was impressed by his ability to expertly balance both the design and usability to create something that seamlessly adapts between desktop and mobile. I wanted my website to be an introduction to me and what I do with a simple way to share snippets of easy-to-digest content - and that's exactly what I got. Thanks Dan and the team at Crowd for giving me a website that I can finally get excited about. I'm already looking forward to the next project.
